Now, it’s true that our schools operate under the auspices of the Charleston County School District, but let’s not kid ourselves: we have high quality education because Mount Pleasant parents are involved. I am proud to live in Mount Pleasant, and I will work to ensure that we continue to have high quality education for our children. I want to see the Blue Ribbon Committee on School Accountability recommissioned by Town Council to ensure that a group of involved and concerned parents, educators, and community leaders understand the issues facing schools in Mount Pleasant and have an opportunity to affect change at the School District level.
Congratulations to Ms. Beckham, the supporting administrators and teachers, and the students at Wando for this outstanding honor. Keep up the great work.
